One major failure in mastering speaking skill was caused by Foreign Language Anxiety
(FLA). Thus this present study aimed at investigating Foreign Language Anxiety of
English Education Department‘s students. This study belonged to descriptive study in
which the participants involved were 70 out of all EED‘s students in the second semester
in the academic year of 2014-2015. The data was collected through administering FLCAS
questionnaires and it was described qualitatively. The results showed that students‘ FLA
ranged from poor to very high where the highest amount (46 students) was in high
category. However, there were some solutions for both lecturers and students to conduct
to reduce the students‘ FLA. Based on the above results, it can be concluded that the
FLA‘s amount of EED‘s students was high and it should be decreased by implementing
some solutions.
